GirlsGuideToPM.com provides practical solutions and easy-to-use templates to help you manage your projects more successfully. As well as that (and maybe more importantly) we are a community trying to get work done in the real world, not the ideal situations that the textbooks describe.
If you juggle multiple projects, competing priorities and want less stress at work, you’re in the right place!
First: Let’s Say Hello
My name’s Elizabeth Harrin and I have so much to share with you. I started blogging about project management in 2006, the year that I wrote my first book. Aside from writing about projects, I do the work too: I’m a normal project manager with a job just like you. I like to think that gives me insights into what works in real life because I have tried and tested A LOT of things.
Second: Join the Community
The easiest way to stay up-to-date is to join thousands of other project managers and get my newsletter. It’s a mix of practical guidance, highlights from the blog and the odd giveaway and freebie too.
You can also hang out in Project Management Cafe, our Facebook group. We have monthly #themeweeks (sometimes with guest experts) and I do a weekly Facebook Live Q&A session to answer the things that matter to you. Mostly we just help each other out and try to get our jobs done.
Got a question? Get in touch.
Third: Let Me Help You Manage Your Projects More Successfully
GirlsGuideToPM.com has been on the web for over 10 years and in that time I’ve written and curated over 1000 articles on all kinds of topics from Agile to professional networking. Project management is vast subject area and if it’s your first time here (or if you are new to managing projects) I get that it’s hard to know where to start. I recommend that you get a cup of tea and then start at the beginning — Only joking!
